My First Homeschooling Meme!!

My first homeschooling questionaire courtesy of BlestwithSons!

1) ONE HOMESCHOOLING BOOK YOU HAVE ENJOYED

I don't have many, but I'm enjoying The Well Trained Mind. I'm not finished with it yet ... I'm reading in small doses for absorbtion purposes. I'd like to read some on Charlotte Mason if anyone has any recommendations...

2) ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULDN’T BE WITHOUT

Ummm ... I haven't been doing this long enough to have something! :)

3) ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER BOUGHT

Ditto.

4) ONE RESOURCE YOU ENJOYED LAST YEAR

We are enjoying Imagination Library ... one benefit of living in Tennessee. Dolly Parton and the Tennessee state government have a program that you can enroll your child in anytime between birth and age five. Then, they will send you a free book every 6-8 weeks. No postage costs, book costs, nothing! We love getting our free book in the mail and checking it out as soon as we get it in the door!

5) ONE RESOURCE YOU WILL BE USING THIS YEAR

I'm going to be working through Before Five in a Row ... it will be done very loosely as I plan on getting two years out of it hopefully before having to decide on kindergarten curriculum! I'm sure there are some who are wondering why I'm bothering with preschool curriculum. One, because I need the structure. I am trained and certified as a teacher for junior high and high school, but preschool stuff is outside my comfort zone. I need all the help I can get. :) And, two, I really want to work on reading with N1 this year. She is just now to where she will sit and let me read a whole book to her and I want to jump on that and reinforce books to her as much as possible.

6) ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BUY

I would love some manipulatives from Melissa and Doug ... especially pattern blocks like these. I also think this doll house would be very cool.

7) ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH EXISTED

I don't think I've been doing this long enough to know what I'm missing. :)

8) ONE HOMESCHOOLING CATALOGUE YOU ENJOY READING

I actually don't have any yet! I just got a Sonlight catalog in the mail and I'm eager to flip through it when I get a chance.

9) ONE HOMESCHOOLING WEBSITE YOU USE REGULARLY

I've enjoyed the Simply Charlotte Mason website, and Letter of the Week. I also love Preschoolers and Peace.
